    Guys, let me know what you think this is? There are big clumps of dirt mounds on the lawn. I know a mole can't make this size of dirt mounds. I was also thinking maybe a groundhog. Do you have any ideas what it could be?? They are all over the place!!

    You say it isn't moles...if they are large holes with what seems like dirt has been "kicked out" it is more likely a groundhog. If they are smaller holes say 2-3" in diameter than it could be a chipmunk.

    Most likely its from Pocket Gophers. They tunnel under ground and push up mounds of dirt.There wont be any visible entry holes. You will never see one above ground during daylight and very rarely at night.
    And chipmonks dont dig in the ground.

    Chipmunks do dig in the ground.
